However, planning things can avoid extreme stressful situations as well. While keeping your job is important, you cannot give the festivities a miss, either.
Here are some tips to dodge stress, shine like a diya with these simple office hacks:
Make a list: The first thing you must do is prepare a list by prioritising your to-do list according to importance and urgency.
